    His guitar and fingers are a big part of that.

    Probably a nice amp, but...it's not the amp.

    I brought a used one home for a weekend trial and it was a nice sounding amp. I just liked my Marshall’s and Fenders a little better. If I was gigging it would be a good versatile amp.

    I owned a different Redplate (Tweedy Drive) for a while. It was quite nice, but the small cabinet didn't do it any favors; it sounded a bit boxy. But in a larger cab it would be excellent IMO.

    Yeah I'd buy the head I have plenty of good cabs. The Blackline is my current choice after rifling through the 1st of 2nd wave of Dumble imitators. It's that tone I'm chasing. I have gobs of Marshalls already plus a Fender 68 Custom Deluxe so looking for another tone to add here.

    Here's Allen Hinds on one, jump ahead to 4:35. Note he's got the bottom cab mic'd not the Redplate.

    Of course naming your amplifier company "Redplate" is kind of like naming your airline "Major Engine Failure".

    Good stuff, on par with Two Rock. Nothing shabby about his work.
